Paying for college involves a partnership between students, their families and the university.  The staff in the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid are dedicated to working with you in order to help you make this investment in your future!  We are dedicated to offering each family the best package of support possible.  Over $320 million in scholarships, grants and financial aid is awarded each year!

We have counselors available for appointments as well as on a walk-in basis.  Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. 

                 Our goal is to make applying for financial aid as simple as possible.
